Ticks

By Unknown | Vet | May 20, 2009

Your Veterinarian can help you recognize ticks and show you the proper way to remove them from your pet (if you simply try to remove the tick by pulling, you may leave it's mouthparts embedded within your pet's skin). Many flea prevention/treatment products will also help with control of ticks. Owners whose dogs have substantial exposure to ticks (eg, sporting dogs, dogs that go camping, and those spending time in forest preserves or woods) should also ask their veterinarian's advice about the appropriateness of a vaccination for Lyme disease.
